Computer Science Engineering:

Computer Science Engineering is one of the most sought branches of engineering and it focuses on the elements of computer networking and programming. The branch of engineering provides knowledge about the design, implementation, and management of both hardware and software.

A computer engineer develops and designs software application for different purposes. Also, a computer engineer possesses knowledge about how to algorithms and codes for operating windows like Windows, Linux, Ubuntu, etc.

Different Types of Computer Science Engineering Courses and their duration:

There are four types of courses available in Chemical Engineering which are explained below:

  • Diploma Courses: The diploma course in Computer Science Engineering is a three-year course which can be done from a polytechnic college. List of diploma course is given below:
  1. Diploma in Computer Science and Technology
  2. Diploma in Computer Science Engineering
  • Undergraduate Courses: The duration of the undergraduate course is four years. A candidate can obtain Bachelor of Technology or Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science Engineering.
  • Postgraduate Courses: The duration of the postgraduate course is two years. A candidate can obtain a Master of Technology or Master of Engineering degree in Computer Science Engineering. Also, a candidate can do a postgraduate diploma in Computer Science & Engineering.
  • Doctoral Courses: A candidate can do Ph.D. or M.Phil. in Computer Science Engineering. The duration of the course is three years.

Eligibility Criteria for Admission in Computer Science Engineering:

For Diploma Course:

  • A candidate should have passed the 10th or 12th examination with minimum % aggregate as per the college from a recognized board.

For undergraduate course:

  • A candidate should have passed the 12th examination with minimum % aggregate as per the college from a recognized board. Also, he/she should have studied 11th and 12th standard with physics, chemistry, and mathematics as the compulsory subject.
  • A candidate must clear the entrance examination held by the exam authorities of the university. For IITs, NITs, etc. candidate must clear JEE Mains and Advanced Examination.

For postgraduate course:

  • A candidate must be a graduate in engineering from a recognized university.
  • A candidate must clear GATE and have a valid scorecard. There are some institutes that conduct their separate admission tests. An aspirant must clear the examination to be eligible for the course.
